Something a little different to add to your aubergine harvest! Aubergine ‘Emerald Isle’ produces plump, oval fruit which are an unusual pale green colour with darker veining. The fruits are small but plentiful and should be harvested when they are about 35mm in diameter. Flavour and texture is the same as purple varieties but the skin is especially tender. This high-yielding, compact variety was especially developed for container growing. It looks great alongside the purple-streaked variety ‘Pinstripe’. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 60cm (24").
Please note: Your plant may include a grafting clip. Leave this in place and it will fall off naturally as the plant grows.

Aubergines grow best at temperatures of 25-30C (77-86F) with high humidity levels. Stake aubergine plants as they increase in size and pinch out the main growing tip to encourage a bushy habit. Water regularly to prevent buds from dropping. Once the first flowers have set, feed aubergines every 2 weeks with a high potash tomato feed. Restricting the crop to 5 or 6 per plant will produce the largest fruits. Harvest aubergines by cutting them close to the stem from August onwards, when the fruit appears fully coloured and shiny. Harvest regularly to promote further flowers and to extend the picking season.
